I still hear those things you'd say

You said life doesn't work that way
I was wasting my time dreaming about
Stupid fantasies that wouldn't pan out

I clung to hope I dared to try
Couldn't watch what I wanted pass me by
I may have stumbled, fallen hard
Or folded instead of keeping my cards

But at least I messed up trying for
All I wanted and even more
I couldn't sit and just take in
All the shit in which you're sinking

And look how your opinions change
Now every person knows my name
You say I'm here because of you
You're wrong again but what can I do?
